ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Denard Robinson's position is a secret for the final game of his college career....
He's a Tebow story
Gringo Mafia Sergeant at Arms - 5 time POTW
I think he could be a solid slot receiver/ return specialist a la Josh Cribbs, though I'm not sure how well he can catch. He's side to side quicker and more elusive than Pryor or Tebow which will help him transition into a new skill position role for a team, unlike the other two I mentioned who have continued to stick with QB even though they don't fit the Pro style well. That same athleticism could translate well to becoming a corner, but I haven't seen him play defense so I have no idea if that will work out.
Cribbs is actually someone I compared Denard to a few weeks ago when we were having a similar discussion. He's not quite as thick as Cribbs, but I'm sure he'll fill out more if he's not playing quarterback. I could definitely see Denard having the same type of career as Cribbs.
Also, if Denard can play well enough on special teams for his first year or two in the league, that'll buy him some time to become an NFL receiver if he's got it in him.
